dc.description.abstract The American TV series You(2018-)has been the subject of a heated debate on both social media and Academia in regard to its ambiguous approach to feminism and gender violence, due to its prioritization of the perpetrator's voice over the victim's(Rajiva and Patrick 2019). In the presentcontext of feminist activism, with movements such as #MeToo and Time's Up fostering female solidarity and giving voice to survivors of sexual violence, the series appears to have an opposite, and evensexist,agenda. Drawing on the concept of 'trauma narratives' (Vickroy 2004; Kohlke and Gutleben 2010), I argue that the first season of the show fails to grant the female victim, Beck, a therapeutic space where she can share her traumatic experience with a sympathetic audience, prioritising the perpetrator'sPOV,instead. This makes the audience alignwith him, blaminghis female victims for their promiscuity andevenfallingfor his romanticised view of violence against women.
